Few events so fully embody Asheville's sense of adventure, its need for excitement, or its legacy of culture so fully as the Mountain Sports Festival
(MSF). The annual, three day festival offers a stunning variety of mountain sports events that have been drawing both amateur and professional athletes alike for six years running. With events like the Pisgah Mountain Bike Adventure
and the MSF Mayhem Skateboard Contest
, it is easy to see why the Mountain Sports Festival has continued to grow in popularity since its inception - Asheville knows adventure when it sees it, and with sports like these coupled with the demos, music, and exhibitors at the Festival Village at Carrier Park, it's hard for anyone to keep away from the festivities.
